6-year-old shatters fund-raising goal in cousin's memory

 

Keegan Klemp sits on the couch of his Clermont home, surrounded by keepsakes of the cousin he loved so dearly.  The quilt just over his left shoulder is made out of pieces of Emylee’s clothes, providing a way to keep her close by, even though she is no longer with him.  This past year, Keegan raised over $1,000 in his cousin’s memory for the Walk Like MADD event in Springfield, Mo.

It was early Thanksgiving morning in 2017.  Summer Klemp was awakened by a phone call.  It was her sister calling to give the family some devastating news.

“I remember that I knew something was wrong; it was too early in the morning for a phone call,” Klemp said softly.  “My sister told me my niece, Emylee, had been in an accident, and she didn’t make it.” 

Not much else in the next few hours is very clear to the Clermont mother as she worked to process the devastating news.
